EXCLUSIVE: Ryan Bang is proud to be a honorary ambassador to the Korea Winter Olympics


 

After being named the Gangwon honorary celebrity ambassador to the Philippines, Ryan Bang said he is looking forward to next year when Gangwon province hosts the 2018 PyeongChang Winter Olympics. “Next year bilang ambassador sana madami ding Pinoy ang dadalaw sa winter Olympics kasi nandun ako eh. This yeah i-a-award ako ng presidente ng Korea, siya mismo nagbigay sa akin ng honorary ambassador ng winter Olympics at saka honorary ambassador ng Gangwon province sa Korea. So talagang blessing sa akin yan this year,” he told PUSH.

The It’s Showtime host admitted he is excited to find out this month if the Philippines will be able to send a representative to compete. “Ang wish ko malalaman kung makapasok ang Philippines o hindi. Kung makapasok yun na talaga isa sa wish ko para pagdating ko sa Korea, may kasama ako na kahit isa man lang makapasok sa winter Olympics. Ako honorary ambassador ng winter Olympics to the Philippines kaya talagang aalagaan ko sila. Magdala ako ng bowtie para ako yung waiter niya, magdala ako jacket para sa kanya kung sino man makapasok, yan,” he shared.

One of the most unforgettable moments for Ryan this year was being able to work with director Cathy Garcia-Molina in the Star Cinema film My Ex and Whys. “Magaling po si direk Cathy. Siya talaga ang magaling kaya binibigyan niya ako ng pagkakataon na may linya or mga chance sa movie so talagang isa yung My Ex and Whys yung isa sa malalaking blessing ko,” he said.

When it comes to comedy, Ryan said his idol will always be one of his fellow hosts on It’s Showtime. “Siyempre si kuya Vhong (Navarro) idol ko. At saka talagang ang dami ko rin natutunan kay mommy Vice (Ganda) at saka natuto ako sa Banana Sundae. Walong taon na ako sa Banana Sundae eh. Sobrang dami ko natutunan dun,” he added.

For this coming Christmas, Ryan said he is planning to go home to Korea.
